This Spring we helped style and throw a baby shower for a dear friend here in Fredericksburg. The theme was one of the mommy-to-be's favorites, Alice in Wonderland. It was a magical evening spent showering mom and baby over an intimate, alfresco dinner. Recently the event was featured on Style Me Pretty Living! It was such a joy collaborating with local vendors to love on a sweet friend. Our Harmony House vanity, in our opinion, made the cutest cake bar and our gold frame was used a chalkboard to display a favorite quote. Below are a few photos taken by the talented Lori Blythe Photography. For the full gallery, vendor list and post please visit Style Me Pretty Living. Enjoy!
We are honored to have recently been featured in a styled shoot in Swooned Magazine! Our Farmhouse table was the anchor for a gorgeous tablescape designed by Hill Country Bride. The location was The Barn at Rockhouse Hideaway right here in Fredericksburg, Texas. It was so exciting getting a behind-the-scenes view of the process and all that goes into creating these magical photographs. We had the opportunity to work with incredible local vendors and had such a fun day. In our opinion, our Farmhouse table has never looked better! A wedding or special event is a wonderful use for our table. Below are a few shots from the day taken by the talented Lori Blythe Photography. For a full vendor list please visit Swooned Magazine. Enjoy!

The process of restoring furniture sometimes feels very personal. You begin with a piece that at one point was shiny and new, without blemish. However, over time, life starts to wear away, resulting in dirt, damage, imperfections or even brokenness. When starting the process of restoration, it's always nice to have a plan hopefully leading to an end result. However, just like in life, the unforeseen can arise. That color scheme you thought was perfect, or a technique you new was right, just doesn't work. Then begins the process (all over!) of strategizing, planning and improvising to salvage the project. This can be exhausting or just plain frustrating. You begin again, work tirelessly and then, all of a sudden, something incredible happens. Your finished product is not only beautiful but better than you originally intended. All of the previous damage, the struggle and what looked like it was going to be a mistake, results in a ending product that is better than you originally imagined. So, what's the point? Enjoy the process (in painting & life)! Restoration is not easy but it can be so rewarding. Just because what you originally intended doesn't work, don't give up. After all, aren't we all a work in progress?
